Marvin® Ultrex® Window Frames: Features and Benefits

Marvin® Ultrex® Window Frames: Features and Benefits

Strength and Durability

Infinity replacement windows feature Ultrex frames. Unlike typical fiberglass frames, Ultrex is tested to be as strong as low-carbon steel and eight-times stronger than vinyl. In fact, special diamond-tipped blades are used to cut it during manufacture. Whereas traditional window frame materials tend to warp from exposure to temperature extremes, Ultrex stays square and true. This allows slim window frames and sashes—translating to bigger glass areas—without compromising structure or stability. Fiberglass windows are also more durable, with a 38% longer useful life expectancy than vinyl.

Beauty

Infinity is one of the few window replacement options on the market that find the perfect balance between brawn and beauty. Thanks to its stable build, Ultrex allows intricate profiles that create realistic wood textures that can stand up to close scrutiny. It features a patented coating system using a mechanically bonded acrylic finish that’s three times thicker than the market standard.

With Ultrex frames, you won’t have to worry about discoloring, scratching or denting during its life span. Infinity replacement windows are available in three interior and seven exterior color options, all of which require minimal maintenance.

Energy Efficiency

Infinity replacement windows are nothing if not energy-efficient. The aforementioned stability of Ultrex frames helps maintain an airtight seal, preventing heat leaks. Ultrex also has inherent insulation. Combined with Marvin’s double- or triple-pane glass options, Ultrex frames help minimize heat transfer and maintain stable indoor temperatures. This results in lower indoor heating and cooling requirements, that then leads to more comfortable indoor spaces all year round.
